Wolverine releases their limited edition Keystone Collection
Wolverine, the more than 130-year-old brand known for durable high-quality boots, introduces their limited edition Wolverine 1000 Mile Keystone Collection. The Keystone Collection honors Wolverineâ€™s innovative founder, G.A. Krause, with two archival-inspired patterns for Fall 2016 including a wing-tip boot and a classic chukka.
Made in the USA, every component of these limited edition styles are handcrafted with the most premium materials available, including 24-karat gold plated and rhodium eyelets as well as Horween Leather Companyâ€™s Cambridge full-grain leather, exclusive to Wolverine. Cambridge is a pure vegetable tanned leather made using many of the same time-consuming processes and elements used to produce the companyâ€™s shell horsehide.
â€œWe pay homage in the Keystone Collection to the craftsmanship, quality and ingenuity that have been hallmarks of Wolverine since the beginning,â€ said Roger Huard, Vice President of Product Development â€“ Wolverine. â€œWe partnered with Horween Tannery to create Cambridge leather – a unique hundred percent veg-tanned leather that combines a rich grain with a supple feel. We detailed this luxurious leather with premium hardware and crafted them in two iconic patterns for a collection that nods to history but offers beautiful footwear for today.â€
Only 300 pairs of each pattern will be available. Each pair comes wrapped in limited edition packaging with a certificate of authenticity and a hand-numbered hangtag.
The Keystone Collection styles are available in the menâ€™s Addison wing-tip and the menâ€™s Charles chukka patterns. The Addison is available in Cordovan No. 8 with 24 carat gold features and the Charles is available in black with rhodium features. Both styles are crafted with Goodyear Welt construction with a leather outsole. The collection is available at Wolverine1000Mile.com, the Wolverine Company Store and at select retailers.
